Dating service for the blind
I look forward to having more conversations with you about this topic. Ryan has even agreed to talk with me on the You Tube channel about it too! I have also been talking with other blind friends on Twitter and on Skype about joining me in this venture as well. If you are interested in being interviewed through Skype in an audio only interview for the You Tube channel, please feel free to find me on Twitter or on Facebook and let me know either in a private message or by leaving me a comment. I look forward to hearing from as many of you as possible.
watch how Google totally didn’t try to sell their driverless car concept with a blind guy at the wheel… I can’t think of one famous blind person dating, let alone marrying a sighted person. Blind mum Amie Slavin probably got her partner to feed her babies, change their nappies, and run the household right?
Are you a sighted person wondering if blind people date? Or, do they branch out into the world of the cited? The blind community has much XPerience with blind dating… It allows two people to come together that have many things in common. The town I live in doesn't have any other blind people my age. The problem was, my heart had already been hurt several times. I was and probably am still a little, a woman scorned. It's taking me a long time to admit that, but it is true.
I mean, why would you go out with someone who can’t see how gorgeous you are… Will the blind film critic be able to rustle himself up some dinner? Let’s be honest, we all really know that blind people could rule the world.
The scent of your perfume and hair, the soft touch of your skin and having a killer personality just isn’t attractive to us blindies. you know, we haven’t got smart phones to stay in touch and gadgets that help us complete practical tasks around the home, and navigate outdoors.
It has allowed them to meet all kinds of new people they may not have otherwise had the chance to encounter. I thought about it for a second, and tell my boyfriend clued me in to reality. It is not aware of the true definition of distance. Instead, with the fact that my heart was still drying.
As some of you already know, I myself have embarked on an online dating journey. I did not seek comfort at e Harmony, or one of those other fishy sites. You see, I had just recently applied the crazy glue and duct tape. But only recently decided to even think about having my heart exposed even a little. It just meant I was open to the idea of meeting someone new.
Not that there is anything wrong with these of course.
pun intended lol Another new interesting dynamic to the land of blind dating, is the new and wide spread phenomenon of online dating. They know the inns and outs, ups and downs and all other directions of blindness. Up until I met my current boyfriend on the playing the blind card Facebook page, I also only dated sighted people. As absurd as it sounds, when I met my boyfriend Ryan, it didn't occur to me to even attempt to date a Nother blind person. I figured, I should be looking for someone who can see, can drive, and therefore better the situation that I was in before I met him. In retrospect, that is probably the main reason I was so jaded about getting into a new relationship.
It has opened a whole new door for the disabled community. It really wasn't anything to do with the fact that we are both blind.
